WATCH: During A Disney Zoom Reunion Demi Lovato Joked About Being Busy With Rehab Over The Past Few Years
The cast of Disney’s Sonny With A Chance/So Random! reunited over Zoom on Saturday April 25th, with lead actress Demi Lovato getting frank about what was going on for her during filming and since.
Castmate Allisyn Snyder put it to the virtual roundtable what everyone had been up to since the show wrapped, to which Demi quickly jested, "rehab! Several times!"
Don’t worry, it wasn’t a sore spot for the actress or any of the cast with them cracking into laughter straight after.
"It's not just rehab!" said So Random's Matthew Scott Montgomery. "You also performed at the Grammys!"
P R E A C H! Let that iconic moment not be forgotten.
Demi revealed a little more about her time in rehab, telling the team that her co-star Tiffany Thornton she was an inspiration during her first trip to the facility.
"When I went away to treatment for the first time, I remember it like, you were my biggest inspiration coming out of it," Lovato told Tiffany. "You dealt with all of those pressures of being a woman on TV. I looked at that like, 'I wish I had that, so bad.'"
She was also admirable of Tiffany’s carefree self-worth and putting her priorities away from appearance.
"Yes, I probably was happier in my head with whatever I looked like at the time, but I'm so much happier now with the mentality you have," Demi shared. "I look back and I'm like, 'Man, it's a shame we wasted any energy on what we wore on set. ... Now I'm just like, 'It doesn't matter! What I'm wearing doesn't matter!'"
At the time of the show, Demi was going through some rough patches of her own, being overworked and thinking of dropping out of the game while also struggling with an eating disorder.
"I wasn't sleeping. I was miserable and angry too because I felt like I was being overworked, which I was!" she said. "I had moments all the time where I was like, 'Do I want to continue this, or do I want to pull a Tiffany and move to Texas and have a family and have a farm? I am having a farm with animals!"
Her castmates joked about her dressing room being at “98 degrees” (aka 36 degrees Celsius), which Demi laughed off saying, "You guys! I had an eating disorder and was underweight and freezing!"
We’re impressed she’s able to look back on that obviously difficult period in such a light-hearted spirit – good on her.
Demi’s been an open book about her past with drug and alcohol abuse as well as eating disorders. Before signing off on the Zoom chat, Demi had one last piece of advice for those watching: "Always speak up for your needs. Just speak up for yourself!"
Put yourself first!! Nobody’s perfect and we appreciate that Demi doesn’t perpetuate that myth.
